Back in 2010 Matt S. was kind enough to send me a FLAC copy of this excellent Valentine's Day show, which he received on CDR from the taper. To my ears it sounds like a very solid cassette recording with a peak limiter engaged, so possibly a Sony deck.
Unfortunately the CDR was riddled with tiny digital pops and clicks, with every song affected except the very last one. The first half was worse off, with parts of some songs having clicks in such rapid succession that it sounded more like static than individual pops. (For some reason they happened in the right channel more -- something about the way CDs work, I guess.)
I spent more hours than I'd like to admit manually removing the clicks, and while I probably didn't get every single one, the net result is a big improvement. There was also a small digital dropout in "John Prine", which I've done my best to fix.
Thankfully there are no skips, and the recording is complete except for a slight fade-in on "In Metal" and a couple places late in the set where the taper stopped his rig between songs. Also note the tease of "One Special Gift" after "In Metal"; they play "Fear" instead.
Enjoy this one! The band and audience are in good spirits.
